With a fasting blood glucose
level of more than 200, you are most probably "a sweet person". the first and formost thing about diabetes
is not to get depressed, because if that happens the disease takes control of you.
diabetes is mainly alifestyle disease, change ur habits- food habits, excersise and activity and definitely u will be able to get the disease under control. i have had a couple of patients who could get off drugs completely.
you must remember diabetes is a multifaceted disease and is influenced by not just what you eat. it also depends on your how you exercise,how you control your stress
and of course how you eat
Do go in for regular blood sugar tests monthly, HbA1C
